Exhibition 2015

The participants of the first Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art created an exhibition extending throughout Saas-Fee, bringing together writing and curating with a series of site-specific installations and performances. Visitors were invited to witness the temporary transformation of the tourist office, the streets, the meadows and the surroundings of the small Alpine town. The works presented intend to reflect on the notion of the singularity submerged in the multiple. They aim to link the knowledge learnt, shared and re-conceived during the weeks spent at the Institute, whilst using multiple means to generate conversations within space.

Participants: Alex Anikina, Josephine Baker-Heaslip, Jonas Becker, Sarah Bernhardt, Stéphane Blumer, Benjamin Busch, Genevieve Costello, Jacquelene Drinkall, Carla Fernández, Ilse Frech, Dawn Gaietto, Verina Gfader, Stephanie Greene, Matthew Hanson, Maegan Harbeidge, Maggie Hazen, Lelia Kozma, Soyoung Kwon, Mickey Lee, Jiyuan Li, Sofia Lopes Borges, Katja Nadine Hogenboom, Ludovica Parenti, Katya Petetskaya, Chandra Pok, Kiersten Puusemp, Jack Schneider, Jack Segbars, Blake Shaw, Paul Stewart, Penny Victoria Rafferty, Gianni Wise, Roxanne Yamis, Sarah Züst

self-affirmation is violence and so the future they were
describing seemed to be the temporary replacement of
their present, a verbal act of leaning for ideas one
can’t quite obtain just yet or a marred mirror, where
boundaries are too entangled to be told apart
